The global political situation has always been a subject legendary hedge fund manager George Soros has had an interest in; over the course of his career Soros has used his knowledge of the ever changing political situation in the world to make risky, but extremely profitable moves on the global financial markets. Even though George Soros was a major backer of Hillary Clinton and made pre-election moves on the U.S. markets based on his hope for a Clinton victory his hedge fund still made a five percent profit across 2016 to continue his impressive returns as a financial expert.
Over the course of his life George Soros has seen his own safety and future threatened by the establishment of various restrictive regimes; in fact, the early years of the life of the 86 year old were spent in Hungary and included the Occupation by Nazi German forces on Forbes. As a member of the Jewish faith the problems faced by his family were many and included the arrival of Socialist governments in the wake of the German loss of World War II.
In a bid to make sure further issues with dictatorships and restrictive regimes were not seen around the world George Soros has established his own Open Society Foundations that works to educate people on the benefits of democracy. The problems faced by minority groups across the planet have a special place in the heart of George Soros, who has backed programs on nytimes.com with some of his own fortune to aid the causes of LGBTI and those affected by drug addiction to the tune of more than $12 billion in charitable giving by the U.S. citizen.
At the recent World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland George Soros made an appearance he used as a way of warning the world of the coming dangers he feels will be faced by the world during the Presidency of Donald Trump. Even though he has made his reputation by making bold moves on the stock market based on an understanding of the political situations across the world, George Soros stated he had arrived at Davos with little way of knowing just what Donald Trump planned to do during his Presidency as the next four years had not been planned by the real estate mogul.
Soros believes the building of the Trump brand was the initial purpose of the candidacy of the newly installed President who was now being advised by people who had an interest in exploring the possibilities of building a dictatorship on opensocietyfoundations.org. The close relationship forming between Trump and dictators, such as Russia’s Vladimir Putin have the opportunity to destabilize the global political and financial situation as restrictive governments are made legitimate through their close relationship with Trump’s Administration.
